Concordare le parole

di Roberta De Piccoli

Sopra il mare, l’oceano

Sopra le nuvole, soprattutto

Sarebbe efficace urlare

il fiato che cresce dentro

un groviglio intestinale,

*

Sarebbe efficace giungere

nuda alla porta cittadina

nell’indiscrezione del bisogno,

*

Sarebbe efficace stare sola

in silenzio a elencare quanto

questo corpo si riempia di giorni tuoi.

*

Sopra il mare, l’oceano

Sopra le nuvole, soprattutto

Sarebbe efficace prendere atto:

le casse d’espansione

sono inservibili, soprattutto

*

si trabocca, di silenzi.

Concord of words

by Roberta De Piccoli

Above the sea, ocean

Above the clouds, above all

A cry would suffice

to expel the air that collects within

an intestinal mass,

*

And it would suffice

to reach the city gates naked

in the indiscretion of need,

*

And it would suffice to stand

in silence enumerating how much

my body fills with days of you.

*

Above the sea, ocean

Above the clouds, above all

Acknowledgement would suffice:

retention basins

are ineffectual, above all

*

they overflow, with silence.

  1. I’ve been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.

    It is pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all web owners and
    bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be
    much more useful than ever before.
